As " Forrest Gump" we learned about life and chocolate boxes "you never know what you will get." But writer Eric Roth, who picked up an Oscar for the 1994 movie starring Tom Hanks, reveals what was planned for the sequel and why it was never made.

Roth, 73, [19659004] told Yahoo Entertainment, the follow-up movie did not follow the "Forrest Gump" author Winston Groom's second novel "Gump & Co." so close. Roth wrote a script in 2001.

"I literally wrote it the day before 9/11," said the author, who also wrote last year's remake of "A Star Born", as well as [19659012] "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button "and" The Horse Whisperer. "

He recalled that "Tom and I and (director Robert Zemeckis) came together on 9/11 to comment on how life was in America and how tragic it was. And we looked at each other and said," This one the movie has no meaning anymore, in that sense. "

Roth said the film would have begun with the revelation that Forrest Junior (Haley Joel Osment) had AIDS, the same disease that killed his mother Jenny Curran, played by Robin Wright.

"People wouldn't go in class with (Forrest Jr.) in Florida," Roth said. "We had a fun sequence where they were (desegregation) buses in Florida at the same time, so people were angry at either the buses or (their) children had to go to school with the child who had AIDS. So that was a big conflict. ] Robin Wright (Jenny Curran) and Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump) in a scene from "Forrest Gump." ” width=”540″ data-mycapture-src=”” data-mycapture-sm-src=””/>
